Opportunity: Willgoss Ensemble Composition Prize
The Music Performance Unit UNSW has announced the Willgoss Ensemble Composition Prize, aimed at encouraging and promoting the creation of an original, short work for ensembles, in support of a thriving instrumental and choral program at UNSW Sydney.
Dr Richard Willgoss and his wife Sue have generously provided support for this prize, to support and inspire composers of the highest standard, with a focus on creativity and excellence. The winner will receive $2,500 and will be commissioned to compose an original, short work for one of the following groups: SATB choir with piano or organ; string ensemble; brass and percussion ensemble; woodwind ensemble. This commissioned short work will be performed in the 2021 season by members of UNSW Orchestra, UNSW Wind Symphony or the Collegium Musicum Choir. The Willgoss Ensemble Composition Prize is open to all Australian citizens and permanent residents, of any age.
Applications close on 2 August 2020.
